In this episode the v6 crew discusses using Wireshark, the popular open-source protocol and packet analyzer, to better understand–and troubleshoot–IPv6.
Guest Jeff Carrell joins the IPv6 Buzz team to share his Wireshark expertise and discuss why looking at actual packets can help you grasp key differences between v4 and v6.
Jeff is a Network Instructor at HPE and has been teaching IPv6 courses for many years. He presents regularly at conferences including Interop, the North American IPv6 Summit, and Sharkfest.
Topics discussed include:
- Why packet captures are a critical tool for learning about IPv6
- What to look out for when using display filters with IPv6
- Why Wireshark packet captures are essential for troubleshooting IPv6
- The common configuration that IPv6 auto-addressing (both DHCPv6 and SLAAC) share
